A loan helped a member to fatten animals.


09_Gpf Manko Mbagam Group's story

This group, made up of six members, was created in November 2017. The purpose of its creation was to allow the members to develop their economic activities. The members live in the same area and are all united by ties of kinship and strong solidarity. Their main activities are retail business and raising animals.

Marame is the group representative. She is a married, 35-year-old woman and mother of two boys and three girls. She is engaged in fattening animals and retail business. Thus, half of this funding will allow for the purchase of two calves to fatten and resell, and the other half of the funding will be used to purchase a freezer for her ice cream business.

Marame plans to save the profits she will earn.

In this group: Codou, Oulimata, Binta, Yetta, Marame Diop, Mame Fama
